    Since the summer semester of 1995, the University Computer Center has been providing a Central User Account as a so-called “Internet Account” for all interested students and, since the winter semester of 1996, also for all professors and staff members upon request. The scope of services initially included an e-mail inbox, static web space and modem/ISDN access. In subsequent years, numerous other personalized IT services were added. Of the services initially offered, only the e-mail inbox has been retained to this day.

    A Central User Account is either personalized (i.e. permanently bound to a natural person) or assigned on a function-related basis (i.e. usable by changing persons). The use of personal accounts by other persons is not permitted!

    Currently, a distinction is made between Student Accounts and Staff Accounts. However, this distinction will be eliminated in the future. Already today, both account types are assigned to numerous user groups and provided with individual authorizations.

    Additional user accounts are required for some services operated by the University Computer Center, see Service Category User Accounts.
